A pretty complicated manip here, trying to depict the unnatural dual personality of Illyana Rasputin and her demon alterego Darkchylde. Darkchylde and Magik have been based on the New Mutants versions of the characters, evident during the Inferno storyline.
The original image used as inspiration was a photograph by Alexander Fedorov. From that basis I re-coloured Illyana's uniform and then created the Darkchylde alterego with ample use of the hue and saturation tools in Photoshop 7. Elements came from various armourers and costume makers on the net.
Illyana's actress is Dominique Swain, probably best known for her roles on Face/Off and Lolita.
Around 60 layers were used in the creation of this pic and filters used were Eye Candy and Xenofex.
